Solar Arrays Attached to NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
At the Astrotech payload processing facility near NASA's Kennedy Space Center on April 19, the solar arrays were attached to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO. This set of three arrays will provide power to the spacecraft as it orbits the poles of the moon during a survey and mapping mission lasting up to five years. LRO is targeted to launch no earlier than June 2.
